Radical Amazement

“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement ... get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted.  Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually.  To be spiritual is to be amazed.”  -Abraham Joshua Heschel

       To be spiritual is to be amazed.  What a great concept!  I love Heschel’s idea to find the incredible and phenomenal moments in life and never take anything for granted.  This quote makes me want to be mindful of every moment and acknowledge the majesty in the little things.  Radical amazement: it’s a great way to live!
